The ParaGard intrauterine device (IUD) was first introduced to the market in 2000. Since then, the ParaGard IUD has been used by many women as an effective form of long-term birth control. However, recently the ParaGard IUD has come under fire for ParaGard removal side effects and ParaGard IUD removal complications that may be linked to this type of birth control device. According to recent research from Statista, the number of people who purchased a ParaGard IUD between January and September 2017 was around 205,000. If you happen to be one of these individuals and experienced negative ParaGard removal side effects or had issues with your removal, it could be time to take action and file a ParaGard IUD Removal Side Effects Lawsuit. We’re here to let you know everything you need to know about the ParaGard IUD removal side effects lawsuit. If you suffered ParaGard IUD removal complications, contact a ParaGard IUD Removal Lawyer today.
What Is an IUD?
An intrauterine device (IUD) is a small plastic T-shaped device used for birth control. It is inserted into the uterus where it stays to prevent pregnancy. It is a small piece of flexible plastic shaped like a T. Sometimes it is called an IUC — intrauterine contraception.
How Does the ParaGard IUD Work?
Paragard works using just 1 simple active ingredient which is copper. Paragard works by preventing the sperm from reaching and fertilizing the egg and may also prevent implantation. However, because Paragard is hormone-free, it will not prevent your natural menstrual cycle or stop you from ovulating each month. At first, periods may become heavier and longer with spotting in between.
Broken IUD Causes How Does the ParaGard IUD Work?
Serious production defects have led to broken IUDs, with the breakage occurring either during the implantation process or during removal. According to an ongoing ParaGard IUD lawsuit, Teva was aware of the potential breakage that could occur from the defective IUDs during implantation and removal.
ParaGard Removal Side Effects
ParaGard IUDs are removed by a healthcare provider. IUDs should be removed when they expire (they typically last from 3 to 10 years), when the user wants to get pregnant, or after experiencing side effects. Some typical ParaGard side effects include light bleeding between periods, cramping, pain, and heavy bleeding during periods. Several ParaGard IUD users have reported that the device can also reportedly break during removal, leaving part of the device embedded in the uterus, according to a report published in the Open Journal of Clinical & Medical Case Reports. Some of the complications caused by a broken or fractured IUD, or otherParaGard removal side effects, include:
Broken pieces getting lodged in the uterine cavity
Why File a ParaGard Lawsuit?
ParaGard IUD removal complications can be debilitating and interfere with a person’s quality of life. ParaGard IUD removal complications may cause those affected to be hit with hefty medical bills, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and lost wages from having to take off from work to recover from their injuries.
A growing number of people are coming forward with allegations of serious ParaGard IUD removal complications. Those who have suffered from ParaGard IUD removal complications should consider filing a Teva Pharmaceuticals lawsuit to seek compensation for their injuries, as well as compensation for other ParaGard users who have been injured by IUD removal.
A ParaGard lawsuit is one way to hold Teva accountable for the safety of its intrauterine copper contraceptive. So if you suffered ParaGard IUD removal complications contact us today.
